Terry M. Fischer Theatre and CASS Present "Dog Lady"
June 10, 2008
Florissant Valley’s Terry M. Fischer Theatre and the Cooperative Association of States for Scholarships (CASS) present "Dog Lady."
The play portrays the neighborliness and strong religious faith that binds the residents of this ethnic community together: the faithful mailman, Orlando; Raphael, a would-be Romeo; and Mrs. Amador, a friendly next-door neighbor, all play important parts. Dona Luna has two daughters, Rosalinda and Jesse, each of whom is searching for a quality of greatness and meaning to her life. The character of the mystical Dog Lady, Dona Luisa, adds hope and humor when she finds a way to help Rosalinda race in the Catholic Girls Marathon.
"Dog Lady" by Milcha Sanchez-Scott and directed by Lisa Gale-Betzler takes the stage at the Terry M. Fischer Theatre June 20, 21, 27, 28 at 8 p.m. and June 22 at 2 p.m. The campus is located at 3400 Pershall Road in Ferguson.
This is a family event and children of 10 years of age and older are invited to attend. The production will be followed by a cultural presentation of traditional dance, poetry and drama from the 6 CASS countries.
